Factors in Determining Bail

In order to bail out of jail, you have to see the judge so the courts set your bail amount. The judge listens to the details of your arrest and factoring past criminal record and severity of your crime, they will set a bail amount that they deem fair. Bail can be paid cash, credit, or even check in some states depending on the amount, where others only take the bail bond or if the amount is too high for cash transactions. The situation that calls for bail requires for you to hire a bail bondsman who charges a percentage of the fee to present the courts the bond for your release. As long as the client adheres to the court dates, no additional costs are assessed. However, if there was a capital crime committed or guilt is fairly evident, bail can be denied.
